Iceland's first lady Eliza Reid surprised people with her fashion at a movie awards ceremony. She wore a black jacket to show her support for the #metoo movement. However, Ms Reid's jacket was not expensive. She said she bought it in a local Red Cross charity store. Iceland's Red Cross was happy about this news. It tweeted that the first lady looked, "awesome in a gorgeous jacket from the Red Cross".

Eliza Reid is from Canada. She met her husband, Iceland's president, at Oxford University. She "won" a blind date with him at a university rowing club event. She had no idea she would one day be Iceland's first lady. They are very popular in Iceland. They both lead a normal life. They go shopping and eat out in the city with their children. The Red Cross hopes more people will like Ms Reid's fashion sense and buy clothes from its charity shops.
